SIG Sauer has announced that its ammunition manufacturing operation will be relocated to a new facility in Jacksonville, Ark. Once renovations are complete, the plant will provide significant room for expansion. The company plans to be up and running by the end of 2016. The move will bring 50 new jobs to the Jacksonville area, with additional openings planned for the future. Company President Dan Powers said, “Our advanced technology will allow SIG Sauer to design and develop world-class, precision-performance ammunition, and our new facility will ensure room for even more state-of-the-art equipment, and a much larger ballistics test lab to facilitate our manufacturing and R&D processes.” sigammo.com
